Description

This event is part of the INSIDE/OUT Lecture Series and is brought to you by the Leeds Beckett University School of Art, Architecture & Design and Yorkshire Sculpture International.

Nobuko Tsuchiya (b. 1972, Yokohama, Japan) lives and works in Japan. Nobuko studied art at the Accademia di Belle Arte in Florence and Goldsmiths, University of London. She is known for making sculptures out of found scraps of household objects such as antennae, rags, plastic tubing, and an old pair of shoes. Her works have been shown at the Saatchi Gallery (London), the Venice Biennale, the Busan Biennale, and the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo (Turin), and La Maison Rouge (Paris).

Recent exhibitions include 30 Ways to Go to the Moon, SCAI the Bathhouse, Tokyo, Japan, 2018, Cactus Triple-Meter Cave, Soko Komagome, SCAI the Bathhouse, Tokyo, Japan, 2017 and Performance: Parking fish project – Vol. Tora-san, Benito Juarez Market, Mexico, 2017.

Nobuko will be in conversation with Principle Keeper at Leeds Art Gallery Sarah Brown, introduced by Godfrey Worsdale, Director of the Henry Moore Foundation.

Nabuko Tsuchiya will be in residence at Leeds Art Gallery for a month prior to Yorkshire Sculpture International with resulting new works showcased at the gallery throughout the festival.

About Yorkshire Sculpture International

The first Yorkshire Sculpture International takes place across Leeds and Wakefield from 22 June until 29 September 2019.

The UK’s largest dedicated sculpture festival, a series of exhibitions, international commissions, events and learning programmes not seen on a scale anywhere else – with sculpture in its broadest forms on display across four major galleries – the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds Art Gallery, The Hepworth Wakefield and Yorkshire Sculpture Park – and outdoors in Leeds and Wakefield.

Organised by Professor Simon Morris from the Leeds Beckett University School of Art, Architecture & Design, the series offers a platform for internationally recognised practitioners to come and talk about their practice.
